APIENC TGNC Rights and Empowerment Day
On Sat. 3/24, APIENC's Trans Justice Working Group is organizing a TGNC Rights and Empowerment Day centered on our transgender and gender non-conforming Asian and Pacific Islander community. We are holding a day-long gathering in order to empower TGNC API people in the Bay Area towards larger social change in which we all feel safe in our bodies, homes, and communities. During this event, we’re planning for multiple workshops, community building activities, and drop-in hours for TGNC API folks to eat, relax, learn, and connect with others. You do not have to identify as TGNC or API to attend! We welcome folks who may be questioning and all folks of color.

Which Documents?: A Workshop on Legal Gender and Name Change

Please note if there are specific ways we can make this event more accessible for you.
Your answer
APIENC, as the hosting organization, wants to be clear that while this event is open to those who identify as trans, gender nonconforming, non-binary, non-cis, questioning and queer people of color, it is centered on those who identify as TGNC Asians and Pacific Islanders. This means that event programming will not focus on topics such as allyship, and we request that non-TGNC/POC identified participants prioritize TGNC POC participation.
